Description:
NEW copy, hardcover with dust jacket. (Grub Street, 2002). Illustrations, appendices, bibliography, index, 217 pages. ~~~ In late 1916 and early 1917 the Royal Naval Air Service bombed Imperial Germany and whilst the attacks were not greatly successful they proved that targets could be reached inside the enemy. And when the Germans in turn started to bomb London in 1917, public opinion began to call for revenge attacks and plans were put in place. The Army and Navy for their part, wanted a resumption of attacks on Germany's war industries. ~~~~ General Smuts, a member of the War Cabinet, prepared a report whose main thrust was that a separate Air Ministry and Air Force should be set up, independent of the Army and Navy and that a strategic bomber force should be formed within this force, whose sole purpose was to attack Germany.

A book written by men who either witnessed or took part in that journey: a book about war." -- Brian Gardiner
